In Charlotte, North Carolina, the Republican National Convention (RNC) was supported by several members of the Metrolina Healthcare Preparedness Coalition (MHPC). Six of the ten members of the RNC Committee's (RNCC) COVID-19 Planning Cell Membership Team were MHPC core members and partners, including Atrium Health, Novant Health, Mecklenburg County Health Department, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Emergency Management, and Mecklenburg EMS Agency (MEDIC). In the past, the MHPC also played a vital role in regional planning and response to the 2012 DNC Management Plan. With the risks imposed by the pandemic, the MHPC had an expanded role in planning as compared to the previous convention, with more members engaged in improving the response to and recovery from major health emergencies. During the convention, Novant Health administered attendee COVID-19 testing and coordinated contact tracing with the RNC Committee and the Mecklenburg County Health Department. MEDIC assisted in organizing and staffing the event's emergency medical response team. Atrium Health provided COVID-19 symptom screening and event medicine services at the convention center host site, ensuring a COVID-Safe environment for attendees and dignitaries.
